Charro-Mexican Chili Beans

I love making this soup on a nice cold day. Not only is it filling and delicious it’s also cheap, doesn’t take but a few minutes, and can be made a lot of times from left overs in the fridge.

I made it for supper tonight because I had left overs in the fridge and coming home a little later than usual I didn’t feel like cooking all night. This is a soup that I even like to eat in warm weather. It’s another one of my most favs.

I have some pretty picky eaters in my family and even most of them love this soup. My grandkids love it! They pick this soup over chef-Boyardee any day.

Hope you try it & like it as much as we do!
